[Tech] iPhone 5 Clone Hints at Real Design

Giz-China has photos of a rather swish looking Chinese iPhone clone that’s rumoured to be based on the next gen model widely tipped for an autumn 2011 reveal. People familiar with such things say its not unusual for chinese counterfeiters to get their hands on prototype or pre-production models and have crappy, but authentic-looking knock-offs on sale even before the new product hits the market. Certainly this, 7mm thin beauty looks plausibly like a new Apple product, and the curved edges tally with the majority of iPhone 5 (or 4S, whatever Cupetrino decide to call it) rumours and leaked case designs.

Be assured though, unlike this £80 fake the next iPhone won’t have a Java-based OS. I hope.
